Oh Finger of God
By Joana Graham
As young and innocent as I am
I try to be as righteous as I can
The world tries to lead me astray
My friends strive to leave me in dismay
But I stand my guard and fight
I do everything I know to be right
My life seems to be full and perfect
How can things fall apart?
Then suddenly like a bolt from the blue.
Everything begins to go wrong
I move from grace to grass
I find myself in an unmistakable fall.
My blood flows with ailment
My veins move with weakness
And my bones ail with brokenness
Those I thought loved and cared about me
Turned their back on me
I feel alone, hopeless and faithless
But deep down I feel a pinch of faith
Just as that little faith begins to fade away
I began to feel invincible to the world.
But before I giving up…I said a word of prayer.
Suddenly a gush of peace descends
I see faith smiling at me again
Then a silent voice whispers…..
“You are not alone, God is with you”
Oh finger of God
